Last Sunday I really enjoyed a concert organized by my friend, Kinky Friedman (who by the way is running for Texas Agricultural Commissioner). The music was great. Chet O’Keefe, Jesse Dayton, Asleep At The Wheel, and Billy Joe Shaver were belting out some fantastic tunes. The concert was a bonefit for the Utopia Animal Rescue Ranch. So, I was listening to Billy Joe Shaver and he was singing the song, That’s What She Said. Later when I was chatting with him about something, he commented, “That’s what she said.”
That really got me to thinking. How many times have I said that? Hmmmm… Once I was at China Garden restaurant and when an egg roll was delivered to the table, my friend said, “Look at the size of that thing!” I smiled and promptly replied, “That’s what she said.” When travelling over the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway in New Orleans one day with a friend, he exclaimed, “Wow, this is really long!” I couldn’t resist so I said, “That’s what she said.” Even when my Swiss & Shout Sandwich was brought to our table at Kenny & Ziggy’s Deli, the guy I was eating lunch with said, “Wow, now that’s big!” Again, much to his (and pretty much everyone else’s) dismay, I blurted out, “That’s what she said.” I know it’s wrong but sometimes my mouth works quicker than my brain – well, most of the time actually. And of course there was the time I was at Dunkin’ Donuts when a customer pointed and said, “I’ll have one of those.” I’m as surprised as anyone that I’m still allowed in Dunkin’ Donuts because , “That’s what she said,” came flying out of my mouth.
I guess I learned a lot from Billy Joe Shaver and I bet you’ve reached the end my little blog and are thinking: Next time you better try a little harder! “That’s what she said.”
